White House backed release of Lockerbie bomber Abdel Baset al-Megrahi

So it looks like Obama is just flat out lying about things now since just about everything he thinks and every policy he tries to enact is denounced by a vast majority of the American people. I know it will be hard for you liberals to focus on this and will make some comment about something that has nothing to do with this, but I understand it is hard for you to comment when presented facts.

How's this:

From your link,

"In the letter, sent on August 12 last year to Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond and justice officials, Mr LeBaron wrote that the US wanted Megrahi to remain imprisoned in view of the nature of the crime."

"The note added: "Nevertheless, if Scottish authorities come to the conclusion that Megrahi must be released from Scottish custody, the US position is that conditional release on compassionate grounds would be a far preferable alternative to prisoner transfer, which we strongly oppose."

So to say that the Obama White House "backed release of Lockerbie bomber" is not really true, is it?

Yeah, saw this earlier but didn't have a chance to comment. The other Jim sums it up quite well. Retraction perhaps? Or are you comfortable spreading untruths.
